Without any doubt this is the nicest Aragonite I have had the pleasure of seeing from the Lavrion mining district on the Attica Peninsula in southern Greece. A small cabinet specimen, the massive white and black Aragonite matrix is encrusted with the most delicate sprays of acicular Aragonite crystals, commonly forming near perfect spheres of 1.4 to 1.8 cm diameter in shades of dark and light silver-grey, pure snow white, salmon pink-tinged white and occasional white rod-like stalactites.
